    For a cool mix of fun, play and education, Wai ariki Farm Park is the ideal outing for families, schools, groups and animal lovers of all ages! You will love our purpose-built Farm Park, Café and Gallery which opened in July 2005. This family business is 100% NZ owned and operated. Wai ariki is set amidst spectacular mountain views on a 14 acre lifestyle block. We have 2 acres of sheltered farm park land where the animals are displayed in a clean, relaxed and peaceful environment. Meet the nicest, friendliest and most interesting farm and exotic animals for you to enjoy and handfeed. Cafe and Craft Gallery After a wander around the Park, relax with a tea or coffee and some fine food from our vibrant café, then browse through the Craft Gallery. Horse-drawn fun The Wai ariki horse-drawn Taxi adds a new dimension to the Wai ariki Farm Park experience. Whether you are looking for a 5 minute ride, a fun way of getting to and from the Park or an extended tour of the village, the Wai ariki Taxi offers you a taste of the horse-drawn era.
